LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan COVID Memorial is FOX 47’s Three Degree Guarantee recipient for September.
Since February The Michigan COVID Memorial has hung over 200 hearts in the Lansing and Jackson Malls in honor of those who have lost their lives to COVID-19.
During the check presentation, the organization was given $1200 and they hope the money will go towards helping find a permanent location where the hearts can hang forever.
“It’s overwhelming,” said The Michigan COVID Memorial Co-Founder Cheryl Garza. “We have people who are thinking about us in this 3 degree weather. Being able to put that money towards a permanent structure is very humbling. This is just very overwhelming.”
